Two juvenile males are in custody after leading police on a brief chase in Mars Hill.
On August 19, 2020, at approximately 8:43 a.m., Sgt. Jeffrey Clark was traveling south on the West Ridge Road in Mars Hill when he met a pick-up traveling north and operating erratically. The vehicle had a snow plow equipped that was dragging on the hot top and no registration plates. Sgt. Clark attempted to stop the vehicle to address the violations.
The operator, later determined to be a male juvenile, refused to stop and increased his speed to approximately 80 mph. The vehicle continued to operate erratically and drove off the right side of the roadway, becoming airborne into a field and came to rest in the woodline. Sgt. Clark placed two juvenile males into custody. No one was injured in the crash. The crash is being investigated by Cpl. Dennis Quint of the Maine State Police.
